In a move that many have been expecting for weeks, RB Leipzig has made it “Twitter Official” with Dominik Szoboszlai.

The former Red Bill Salzburg star, who was linked to Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, and Arsenal among others, received a hype video that would have made Michaël Cuisance proud as RB Leipzig revealed its latest signing:

While Bayern Munich and those other clubs were often listed as potential suitors, it was always clear that RB Leipzig had the inside track on signing Szoboszlai. The immensely talented Hungary international has nine goals and 10 assists in 21 games across all competitions this season for Salzburg.

Szoboszlai who can be deployed centrally as an attacking midfield or out-wide as a winger or wide-midfielder, should make an immediate impact for Julian Nagelsmann’s squad, which has struggled offensively at times this season.

With Szoboszlai in tow, Nagelsmann can get back in his lab and devise new and innovative ways to deploy his new weapon. There is no doubt that this makes Die Roten Bullen an even more viable contender for the Bundesliga crown this season.
